1.1. Your Didactas membership will continue and automatically renew until terminated. To use the Didactas service you must have Internet access and a Didactas ready device and provide us with one or more Payment Methods. "Payment Method" means a current, valid, accepted method of payment, as may be updated from time to time and which may include payment through your account with a third party.

1.2. We may offer a number of membership plans, including special promotional plans or memberships offered by third parties in conjunction with the provision of their own products and services. We are not responsible for the products and services provided by such third parties. Some membership plans may have differing conditions and limitations, which will be disclosed at your sign-up or in other communications made available to you. You can find specific details regarding your Didactas membership by visiting our website and clicking on the "Account" link.

2.1. Billing Cycle. The membership fee for the Didactas service any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the service, such as taxes and possible transaction fees, will be charged to your Payment Method on the specific billing date indicated on your "Account" page. The length of your billing cycle will depend on the type of subscription that you choose when you sign-up for the service. Membership fees are fully earned upon payment. In some cases your payment date may change, for example if your Payment Method has not successfully settled or if your paid membership began on a day not contained in a given month. We may authorize your Payment Method in anticipation of membership or service-related charges through various methods, including authorizing it up to approximately one month of service as soon as you register. In some instances, your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorization during your free trial period.
2.2. Payment Methods. To use the Didactas service you must provide one or more Payment Methods. You authorize us to charge any Payment Method associated to your account in case your primary Payment Method is declined or no longer available to us for payment of your subscription fee. You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not cancel your account, we may suspend your access to the service until we have successfully charged a valid Payment Method. For some Payment Methods, the issuer may charge you certain fees, such as foreign transaction fees or other fees relating to the processing of your Payment Method. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.
2.3 Updating your Payment Methods. You can update your Payment Methods by going to the "Account" page. We may also update your Payment Methods using information provided by the payment service providers. Following any update, you authorize us to continue to charge the applicable Payment Method(s).
2.4. Cancellation. You can cancel your Didactas membership at any time, and you will continue to have access to the Didactas service through the end of your billing period. To cancel, go to the "Account" page on our website and follow the instructions for cancellation. If you cancel your membership, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period. To see when your account will close, click "Billing details" on the "Account" page. If you signed up for Didactas using your account with a third party as a Payment Method and wish to cancel your Didactas membership, you may need to do so through that third party, for example by visiting your account with the applicable third party and turning off auto-renew, or unsubscribing from the Didactas service through that third party. You may also find billing information about your Didactas membership by visiting your account with the applicable third party.
2.6. No Refunds. Payments are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current billing period. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members ("credits"). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.

If Didactas initiates arbitration, it will send a written Notice to the email address used for your membership account. A Notice, whether sent by you or by Didactas, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If Didactas and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Didactas may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court.
6.3. You may download or copy a form Notice and a form to initiate arbitration at www.adr.org. If you are required to pay a filing fee, after Didactas receives notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, Didactaswill reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than US$1,000, in which event you will be responsible for filing fees.
6.4. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement. Unless Didactas and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your residence. The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding on all parties, except (1) for judicial review expressly permitted by law or (2) if the arbitrator's award includes an award of injunctive relief against a party, in which case that party shall have the right to seek judicial review of the injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction that shall not be bound by the arbitrator's application or conclusions of law.
6.5. If your claim is for US$1,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds US$1,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision explaining the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.

Further, unless both you and Didactas agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.

Affiliate program terms and conditions
What is an affiliate?
An affiliate is a person with an account at Didactas (whether free or premium) who promotes Didactas through the links available in the affiliate program menu.
What is an affiliate link?
An affiliate link is a link to one of Didactas' pages or contents that includes a reference to the affiliate's name. Something like https://didactas.com?rf=affiliate_name
What is a referred person?
A referred person is someone who clicks on an affiliate link.
What is a conversion?
A conversion occurs when a referred person makes a purchase, and the affiliate earns their corresponding commission.
Affiliate Program Operation
The Didactas Affiliate Program operates as follows:
The Affiliate promotes Didactas' affiliate links through their own means, adding comments, images, or appropriate texts to enhance the promotion.
When someone clicks on these links, it directs them to various Didactas pages.
Didactas detects who the affiliate is and places a cookie in the visitor's browser to identify them as referred. This way, the visitor becomes a referred person.
This cookie will be stored for a month and then automatically deleted.
From that point on, whenever the referred person makes a purchase on Didactas, the system checks for the cookie and automatically attributes the corresponding commission (as indicated below) to the affiliate.
The Affiliate commits to promoting the Didactas platform to visitors of their digital spaces, using the promotional elements provided by Didactas and confirming that each of them contains their affiliate link. The relationship between Didactas and the Affiliate does not constitute any form of partnership or association, as the two legal entities are independent and autonomous, with no employment relationship between them.
Didactas commits to facilitating sales to visiting individuals and attributing them to the respective affiliates. It will also provide access to the system, functionalities, technical support, and payment management to the best of its ability. It will also offer a view of the statistics of clicks and conversions made by the visitors.
The Affiliate is entitled to a fixed percentage of the value of each Premium plan, event, course, or other sellable items observed within the affiliate program.
In the sale of a Premium Plan, the affiliate will receive 30% of the value spent by the referred person on their first payment.
In the sale of events and courses, the affiliate will receive 30% of the value spent by the referred person.
In the sale of events and courses where the affiliate is a creator, they will earn 50% if the buying person arrives without an affiliate link. They will earn 70% of the amount spent if the buying person arrives through the affiliate link of said creator.
Commissions can only be withdrawn through a PayPal account when the accumulated commission minimum is at least $10 (10 US dollars).
The Affiliate, through their Affiliate menu, can request the total value of earnings in their Didactas account.
Didactas reserves the right to exclude individuals from the affiliate program if:
- The affiliate violates the terms and conditions of the affiliate program.
- They inappropriately use Didactas' name, brand, images, texts, and pages (even partially) that have not been authorized in writing.
- They advertise with paid methods (search engines, social media, etc.) using the keyword "Didactas" and affiliate links.
- They promote Didactas on pages containing content that encourages any form of violence, illegal activities, racial, sexual, social, religious, age, or nationality-based discrimination, and violates copyright or intellectual property rights.
- They impersonate a Didactas member or collaborator without being one.
- They create offers different from those offered by Didactas without written authorization.
Any of these situations will constitute serious violations that will result in the immediate exclusion of the affiliate from the Affiliate Program and the retention of corresponding earnings, without any liability on Didactas' part for the affiliate's losses or damages.
This service provision contract will begin on the date the activation of the Affiliate Program by the affiliate is accepted by Didactas and will remain in effect indefinitely, and can be terminated at any time by the affiliate or by Didactas, with or without cause.
The relationship between Didactas and the affiliate does not constitute a partnership, association, or employment link for any purpose or legislative effects, as the two legal entities are independent and autonomous.
Communications between the parties regarding participation in this program, including service requests, rule alterations, or anything related to the subject, will be conducted via email.
It is the responsibility of the affiliate to ensure availability to receive communications from the Didactas Affiliate Program and its management. Failure to do so risks not being informed of any changes in the program's operation, and Didactas cannot be held responsible for lack of information.
Disputes arising from the interpretation and application of this contract will be resolved by mutual agreement between the parties and, ultimately, through legal means. Both parties hereby stipulate the jurisdiction of the laws of the state of Minnesota (United States), expressly waiving any other jurisdiction, regardless of their place of residence.
If you have any questions about these Terms and Conditions or would like more information about the Didactas Affiliate Program, please contact us.
Conditions for Hosting Webinars on Didactas.com
These conditions apply to individuals who collaborate with Didactas by presenting webinars with or without recording.
Conformity with recording usage
The event will be recorded, and the recording, excluding the advertising portion, will become part of the Didactas Premium collection. It will therefore become part of the content for which benefits are distributed based on minutes viewed per month (pay-per-view system).
Conformity with event and/or recording disclosure
The event and/or its recording will be promoted on social networks or similar communication channels, and we may use the public information you have provided to us, including the photo.
Recording usage rights
All copyright rights to the presentation and recording of the event belong to the presenter. Didactas, on its part, will have the right, for a minimum of one year, to use the recording as part of its paid content collection or sell it separately, in which case the details described in the "Economic Benefits" section will apply.
Every month, a portion of Didactas.com's revenue is distributed among all individuals with premium content on Didactas.com.
Once the recording of the event enters the Didactas Premium pay-per-view system, you will be entitled to a portion of that revenue based on the minutes viewed in relation to the total minutes viewed for all premium content.
If the event offers a paid registration option (non-Premium), you will receive 50% of the revenue from such registrations.
If the event offers a Premium paid registration option, you will receive 50% of the corresponding payment for the first month.
In the case of selling the recording separately (outside the Premium Plan), you will receive 50% of the payments made.
Registrations made through your affiliate link (if you have one) will also accumulate the percentage described in the affiliate program benefits table.
